Contaminants in the air in your home can have a major impact on your family’s health!

When we think of air pollution, often pictures of smoggy cityscapes or factories belching smoke are what come to mind first. While this type of air pollution is certainly dangerous, Airpliance knows that indoor air pollution can also be damaging to a person’s health. If keeping your family healthy is important to you, there are a few things you should know about indoor air quality.

Why Air Quality Matters

It’s pretty well known that outdoor air pollution can have a detrimental effect on public health, but many people overlook how the quality of the air in their own homes is affecting their health. If you suffer from allergies or other respiratory issues, indoor air quality becomes even more important an issue.

There are many potential sources of air pollution in the typical American home, including household chemicals, pet dander, mold, microorganisms, radon, even asbestos in older buildings. Formaldehyde is found in many household products, such as paints and wood products. This chemical alone can cause irritation to the eyes, nose, throat, and skin.

Some pollutants can cause an immediate effect on the body, inducing fatigue, headaches, dizziness, eye, nose, and throat irritation, and more. If symptoms like these have become common in your household, you should have Airpliance conduct an evaluation of your indoor air quality. Long-term exposure to household pollutants can have serious health implications, causing a variety of respiratory and heart conditions. It’s just not worth taking the risk when there is something you can do to prevent some of these major health problems.
